Guidance and reference
The key training documents for all Registrars are:
Curriculum: the latest curriculum for specialty trainees  came into force in January 2017.
Handbook: the Training Handbook  covers the procedures, regulations and key contacts (e.g. Regional Specialty Advisors) for specialty training; the handbook is based on:
Gold Guide: the Gold Guide  is the GMC’s latest guide to postgraduate specialty training and the ultimate reference for training regulations, including the structure of training and Out Of Programme scenarios.
Feedback and Reflection: The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges provides guidance  on gaining maximum value from feedback and reflection for trainees and trainers. This is not intended as a mandatory way of working but is a good resource to assist trainees in ensuring they get the best out of their relationship with their trainer.
This was established by FOM’s Trainee Reps as a space for trainees to discuss and share their questions and experiences in training. This is run independently from FOM. If you wish to be added to the eForum please email the Examinations & Training Team , who can forward your request to the current administrator of the trainee eForum.
As you progress through training, you are asked to submit several forms to FOM.
M1 StR registration  – to be submitted at the start of your training
M2 Submission of outline protocol  – outline of research project (e.g. dissertation) written for purpose
